September 7 – October 14, 2017

Opening Reception: September 7, 6-8PMA photograph of a piece of artwork. The artwork features white and black figures and visual elements on a dark brown, metallic background. These elements flow downward into a outlined doorway or portal where the movement transforms into an entangled singular element, opening underneath. There are brightly coloured borders above and below the image, and where the flurry meets the doorway, there is a golden rope with light glittering from it. The image shows a flurry of movement, which represent seasons, changing time, and growth. This piece is titled: “A Fever Swelled In Me”

Progress is a Spiral Upward, a visual arts exhibit by Toronto-based artist sab meynert, consists of vivid drawings and sculptural pieces. meynert utilizes organic repetitive patterning, interweaving poetic imagery and text to reveal graphic maps reflecting life’s infinitely unfolding nature. For this premiere exhibit, meynert will show new pieces that incorporate semi-precious crystal, alabaster stone, 24k gold and silver, and organic matter, in addition to handcrafted ink and paint paper works. These new elements call upon their traditional knowledge, rooted in ways that intentionally draw out the metaphysical abilities of material, and move the work beyond the limits of form.

“Map out your inner life/ and watch the patterns emerge/// take flight.”
